Action for Public Transport (N.S.W.) Inc.
We refer to the recent announcement that paper Pensioner Excursion tickets will not be sold after 31 December 2015.
We would suggest that gold Opal tickets should be made available
over-the-counter subject to proof of eligibility from at least some retailers
from that date. We would suggest CBD and some other key railway stations
including airport stations. This would be convenient to senior visitors from
outside Sydney who wish to use public transport while in town.
